Steering Column Squeeks on 1998 Toyota Camry

My wife is concerned with the noise that emits from the steering column of her 1998 Toyota Camry. The noise is difficult to relay into words, but it is emitted only when making turns. The noise can be discribed as a squeek but it more closely resembles air escaping from a balloon when air is released while pinching the air hole.

it is likely coming from the airbag contact ring. if the SRS light is not on, it likely still functions. always a trade off with an upset wife; which one is worse?
